It started with a simple question around a fire at Lafayette Campground in the White Mountains of New Hampshire:
What do you want in a job?
It didn't take much thought for me to determine that my current employment was not what I wanted to do long term and for me to create a quick list of "wants":
- I want to enjoy coming to work every day
- I want to employ and support people who are passionate about their jobs
- I want to create a brand and product that resonates with a local audience
- I want to give back to the communities where we do business
What I kept coming back to was that I wanted to translate my love of beer, brewing, friends and family into a profession. I wanted a brewery...and lucky for me, I have a supportive wife.
When Lops Brewing opened on July 27th, 2019 it was a culmination of an 18 month journey, transitioning from concept and planning to final execution.
I look forward to meeting you all and providing great beer in a comfortable welcoming environment.
